Lima Memorial Cardiac Rehab begins during your hospitalization and continues in a safe, supervised outpatient setting to help you get back to the active lifestyle you are used to having.
Our program offers an individualized, comprehensive approach to cardiac rehabilitation, providing you the right tools for a successful outcome, including exercise, education, counseling, cardiovascular risk factor modification and patient & family support.
The program is available to patients in the community and surrounding counties as an important part of treatment for specific heart problems. You may benefit from cardiac rehab if your history includes: heart conditions, such as a heart attack, coronary artery disease, angina or heart failure, coronary artery bypass graft (CABG surgery), stenting, valve replacement, a pacemaker or an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD).
Our unique Cardiac Rehabilitation Program consists of three phases to enhance the quality of life for people who have heart disease to help patients return to a safe, healthy and active lifestyle following a cardiac event. Each phase of the program provides progressively challenging exercise regiments along with educational classes, allowing participants to learn how to care for their heart.
Phase 1: This phase begins in the hospital during the patient’s recovery from a heart event or surgery. It consists of a comprehensive educational program, guided by physicians, rehab specialists, dieticians and nurses, designed to help patients begin lifestyle changes and transition to an outpatient program.
Phase 2: This phase takes place as an outpatient in our supervised cardiac treatment center location and consists of ongoing individualized education with an exercise plan and EKG monitoring. This phase provides customized treatment plans focused on improving disease risk factors. Participation is two to three days a week for up to thirty-six sessions.
Maintenance Program: Our Maintenance Program allows the patients to build upon the progress made in Phase 1 and 2 while transitioning into a supervised, non-monitored, independent program within our Cardiac Rehabilitation department. Patients will continue to have direct access to our team for any assistance needed. This program is designed to help you continue to lower your risk of a future cardiac event. Please note, the Maintenance Program is not covered by Medicare and generally is not covered by third-party payors; however, this program is offered at a reasonable cost. Please be sure to check with your insurance provider.
To qualify for our Maintenance Program, you must have completed our Phase 2 program.
